Re: Intro - Ruth McTighe

Thank you for the welcome Jason. At the moment I've gone back to the textbook I used in 1981 - Wenham's Elements of New testament Greek. I've also seen on here information about Shirley Rollinson's online course, so I thought I might try that. Ruth Welcome to B-Greek, Ῥoύθ. I'm not currently teachi...

Re: Revelation 1:1 ἀποστείλας Nominative Verb?

Thanks for the feedback!

This text just is a hard nut to crack. Sometimes I want to despair and wonder why God made some parts of the Bible so difficult to understand.
It keeps us from spiritual pride :-)

Re: γραφει τους λογους

I refuse to take the bait every time someone commends the heathen pronunciation of Latin. Augustine used classical pronunciation. Don't ask me how I know. I just know. :shock: :roll: Heresy! I hereby excommunicate both of you (I've just been writing notes for my Church History students) :-) :-)

Re: In 1 Peter 3:22 is the subjugation complete or ongoing?

Dear Bill The New Testament (in whatever language) isn't a book for doing grammar chops - it's a book to read with reflection and prayer, to let it speak to us. Learning Greek, and reading the GNT is one of the ways of slowing us down and forcing us to read the text more carefully. I'd encourage you...
